    Fair enough. Nothing more depressing than depression.

    Hey, i'm not going to go into details on here, i cant get my thoughts together to even begin to write them down. But i've realised i cant go on like this anymore. I think i might have depression, but i also have days when everything seems like its going to be ok so i dont want to talk to someone and have them say i'm just making a fuss over nothing. I can see my GP as its too far away for me to get to, there is a college nurse but i dont know what she will say. I honestly dont know what to do. Things got really bad the other day and I self harmed again. I havent done that in so long and i thought id put it behind me. I also lose control and over eat, i feel so out of my depth. I know i need to get better as this is ruining every aspect of my life, i want to go to uni so that i can move away and start a new life. i dont want to be this person anymore and i'm fed up of feeling so **** constantly.
    Sorry that was a bit of a rant post but basically i want to know who to go to to get help?
    I would appreciate any response.
    Hey, I think if you are selfharming then you should really speak to someone about it. I think speaking to the school nurse would be a great start, she could maybe refer you to someone who will know how to deal with your situation. I've tried counselling my self which has worked to a certain extent so I'd recommend that too. :hugs:

    can some people on here share their experiences of depression (how long they have been depressed, reasons, help they received etc). I'm particularly interested in people's experiences of suicide (have you attempted it, thought about it etc) and what people's opinions are on suicide.

    EDIT - I'm feeling like cr*p
    Hey mathperson.
    too long, too long.:o:

    Spoiler:
    Show

    Tbh for me I've never really been a happy kid, like I was bullied every school I went to, I never made more than maybe 1 or 2 friends at each school and even them I had to bribe to be my friends. I never got invited to parties or anything, my whole life outside of school was just playing computer games with my siblings. Secondary school was a little better than primary but still sucked. I wasn't happy there at all and first started self harming at around 14/15 mostly I think because I felt like I deserved it because there must be something seriously wrong with me that no one liked me. Stuff just went downhill from there. First year uni I thought I had friends but turned out most weren't really. Went to a dr got told it was "teenage hormones". Yeah drinking several bottles of vodka on my own a week, self harming and crying all the time is definitely teenage hormones. Finally saw another dr few months later, got prescribed antidepressants, none of them have worked - I've been on 9 or 10. Got psychiatrist, got cpn, got psychologist, nothing helped. Thought about suicide a lot but never attempted it although I'm fairly sure if I did, i wouldn't fail. There are 2 reasons I haven't done it yet but I don't want to go into them here. As for my opinions on suicide, I think it's totally selfish for people who have no idea what a person is going through to tell them they're being selfish for daring to think about wanting to kill themselves.


    Sorry about the length, but you did ask :p:

    I am so ******* knackered. Which is weird because I slept between my classes today, and even in one of my lectures (was woken up by head falling off my hand, and so very nearly smashing my face on the desk ). I also feel extremely sick. I reduced one of my "medications" by 1/3 last night which may be why.

    I think i'm crazy and have officially cracked:eek:. I just don't care about uni anymore - i just insult and bad mouth the toffs and just take the piss out of geeks (man how i detest geeks). And i don't even care about any of the uni work - i've not studied in over a week. I don't bother in problem sheets, and never read my lecture notes when i get home or do anything resembling work!

    I like go home and and come here and listen to radio for a few hours and then hit 9pm i go watch movies

    Is anyone else leading a similarly unproductive, depressive life? I'm just so happy that i have someone to share my hatred of uni with

    I know the feeling...I managed to somehow complete 3 essays over xmas (which were due in last term) but I've been back 3 weeks and done absolutely nothing. I tried reading a textbook a few times but have ended up in tears everytime. I'm so behind on reading (really wasn't doing much last term either) that I have no idea how I'm going to catch up before exams. I might leave. I spend all my time in class thinking about it. Yeah you're not alone.

    Hey. The citalopram might take anything up to 8 weeks to start working so don't be disheartened if you don't feel better right away.

    Regarding the questionaire it's pretty simple you just rate how much each of the statements apply to you. As far as I can remember it's something similar to this:
    http://counsellingresource.com/quizz...ion/index.html

    Same sort of questions. Just be honest, it's easy.

    Hope this helps.
    Hey thanks for that. Took my first dose last night and had a s**t nights sleep, felt really sick and when i got up for a drink i felt dizzy. Hope its not going to be like that every night, was shattered in class today!

    I know the feeling. I just do not have any motivation about doing any uni work, and i just don't care much either. Like i had to do a bit today, took me like 10 mins but i really couldn't see myself doing any more. I just feel like its pointless and although i like the course i just dont want to do the work. I can easily spend day after day doing nothing.

    By the way i couldnt figure out how to quote two people in one reply so sorry about that :o:

    Hi,

    thanks for asking.
    Yeah I'm doing pretty well thanks, I mean I still have a long way to go until I'm 'better' etc, but OKish at the moment really.
    One of the problems I had is that when I first started feeling really low I didn't want to seek help. I didn't really want to 'bother' people (even if it was their job to help in those situations) because to be honest with you I used to be one of the people who thought that people who talk about suicide don't actually want to do it and are just seeking 'attention'. The reason I used to think this is because I thought that if someone really wanted to kill themselves then they wouldn't want anyone to stop them. However now that I have been in the situation (you know I tried to, right?) I know this to be an assumption made by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I'll speak to people in future to make sure I don't go 'back there'.
    I also tried overcoming my problems with socialising (autism) by trying to socialise with a group of people on my course. However they - frankly- turned out to be fake, judgemental, bast***s. I have nothing to do with them anymore, and I am just 'concentraing' on the good mates I already have.

    Long...sorry.
    How are you? Are you going through depression?

    I'm feeling a fair bit better than I was this morning. This afternoon I've ruined somebody's thread about pancakes, and advised a 15 year old girl to watch lesbian porn. I love the internet. It makes life worth living...

    How are you? Are you going through depression?
    Ah well i am glad you are feeling a bit better and forgetting about jerks like that. i have had experiences with people like that - not nice. It is good you are concentrating on the people who really matter to you

    At this moment in time i am not exactly sure where i am. i defintely know i am not how i used to be and there is something wrong. i can go through days of feeling very dark and in my own little world, crying a lot etc but some days i am not so bad. i have an appointment with a doctor in 3 weeks to take a questionnaire which should let me know more.

    i am very glad this thread exists, it helps.

    Nice to meet you too. i am doing marketing and am starting to get knee deep in work already - and am avoiding it like the plague. i am in my first year, so with a year work placement in 3rd year (which i am absolutely petrified about), still got a while left yet. ah well you nearly finished then, any thing lined up after uni?
